    Just don't do it, don't go there!! You'll regret it..

    Personal Banker (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary is the only advantage. But really the stress and pressure is not worth it. Think about your health and state of mind..

    ConsLots of overtime, stress, pressure and no support at all. No training provided, all you are given is a desk and computer and work it out yourself! Have to be a miracle worker to achieve sky high sales and revenue targets. Expectation is a 1k a day and if you don't meet that then expect to stay behind late until you do. Diary must be full everyday with 25+ calls that MUST be made everyday. If you don't do it then expect to be thrown to the kerb or lectured. No coaching and terrible environment to work in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake note as to what the other Big 4 banks are doing, because they are doing it right. They care for the workers and provide support and training. How can you expect your workers to do unthinkable things just so you achieve targets. Disgusting! No thanks!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
